When we pay our monthly bills, we get used to a routine. A certain amount goes to electricity, another amount goes to gas, and another portion goes to water. Generally, how much you pay for each stays within the same range monthly, with normal fluctuations due to extended use. However, when we get a high water bill completely out of the blue, it is definitely cause for concern. At Plumbing Plus, our Poway plumbers want to help you determine possible causes for the unusual increase as well as solutions to help your bill return to a normal price.

Benefits of Point-of-Entry Water Filtration and Point-of-Use Water Filtration
A water filtration system is connected to your existing water supply to reduce harmful impurities and other contaminants in the local water supply. These impurities can result in sediment, bad taste, odor, hardness, and bacteria, all of which take a toll on your water quality. Water hardness is the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium in the water. If your water is “hard,” your appliances might not work as efficiently.

For this reason, installing a water filtration system is a great way to be proactive about the plumbing system in your home.
